    Mama's Healthy Heavenly Chocolate Truffles


    Recipe Description
    These healthy truffles are great for snacking, presents or a hostess gift. Hope you enjoy!
    Preparation Steps:Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:Ingredients:
    Heavenly Chocolate Truffles

    Ingredients:

    1⁄2 cup almonds


    1/4 cup walnuts

    1⁄8 cup cashews


    1.5 cup pitted dates, packed


    3 tbsp cocoa powder


    1⁄2 tsp pure vanilla extract


    1⁄8 tsp sea salt


    1⁄8 tsp almond extract
    Serves:
    12-15
    Directions:
    Directions: In a food processor, process the almonds, walnuts and cashews until fine but not flour. Add in the roughly
    chopped and pitted dates and process until crumbly. Now add in the cocoa powder,
    the vanilla & almond extract, and sea salt. Process until crumbly. Do not process long enough for

    the mixture to get too sticky (like nut butter). You want to work the mixture a bit in your hands

    to warm it up so you can form a ball with it. If you process it for too long, it will become oily.

    Form balls .

    Thanks Mauimagic! I use unsalted raw! To add extra nutrition, I usually soak the nuts , then dehydrate ( at 135 to preserve the enzymes) But you don't have to.

    Soaking raw nuts and seeds stimulates the process of germination, which increases the vitamin C, B, and carotenes . It also neutralizes phytic acid, a substance present in the bran of all grains and seeds that can inhibit some absorption of calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, and zinc. Raw nuts and seeds also contain enzyme inhibitors that are neutralized by germination.
